Kia Philippines is poised to shake up the crossover segment with the upcoming launch of an affordable and promising new offering, the Stonic. Now that the vehicle’s official unveiling draws near, let’s do a quick rundown of what we know about the vehicle’s specs and pricing so far.

The Kia Stonic stands 4,100mm long, 1,735 wide, and 1,532mm tall with a 2,570mm wheelbase and 185mm of ground clearance. As we previously reported, it packs a 1.4-liter gasoline mill that’s mated to a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox. Automatic units generate 99hp, while manual ones are capable of 94hp. What we didn’t mention before was that the crossover will boast 132Nm of torque.

Inside, the Stonic gets an eight-inch infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility as standard, and this produces sound via a six-speaker setup. A reversing camera is also available across the range.  Features exclusive to the top-of-the-line variant include a smart entry system with push-start ignition, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, electronic stability control, and hill-start assist.

Speaking of variants, there will be three available. And as we’ve said before, the base model starts at P735,00, but Kia Philippines is offering the vehicle with a special launch discount. Purchases of any model come with a five-year or 160,000km warranty (whichever comes first) and free 24/7 roadside assistance for five years.
